Crossing Mountains & Seas
Crossing Mountains & Seas fuses together contemporary and aerial dance, contemporary music with Chinese traditions and avant-garde improvisation, against dramatic media projection with the latest video technology, crossing over modern day Canada and a magical world of pre-historic Asia as described in the ancient book Shan Hai Jing or the Classic of Mountains & Seas.

Shan Hai Jing  is an enormous collection of ancient Chinese writings and drawings about a magical world where countless mythical creatures or hybrids of human and animals have lived in over 100 kingdoms. How the creatures in these kingdoms have lived in harmony with each other is a metaphor of an ideal multi-cultural society that we are seeking for today. To bridge between the modern day and the mythical world, the story will unfold within an imaged role-playing video game based on Shan Hai Jing. The game acts as a portal for our characters to travel between the ancient and modern worlds, the east and the west, the sea and the sky, and the reality and our imagination.
